Rating agency changes

Per Markel’s legal entity simplification initiative and the successful mergers that transacted on Dec. 31, 2015, several rating agencies have “withdrawn” the ratings for the companies that no longer exist (Deerfield Insurance Company and Alterra Excess and Surplus Insurance Company). We fully expected this action to be taken and would like to assure our policyholders and production partners that this action was planned. View more rating agency information.
